up and maintain the system of accounts necessary to monitor,
preserve and ultimately reconvey the funds conveyed to it
pursuant to sections 30.953 to 30.971. All funds, property,
income and earnings received by the investment trust from
any and all sources shall be promptly credited to the appropriate
2. Unless and until invested in compliance with sections 30.953 to 30.971, all moneys received by the investment trust shall be promptly deposited to the credit of the investment trust in one or more banks or financial institutions in this state. No such money shall be deposited in or be retained by any bank or financial institution which does not continually have on deposit with and pledged for the benefit of the investment trust the kind and value of collateral required by section 30.270, for depositaries of the state treasurer.
3. The board of trustees shall invest all funds under its control which are in excess of a safe operating balance and not subject to imminent conveyance to the state treasury. The funds shall be invested only in those investments which a prudent person acting in a like capacity and familiar with these matters would use in the conduct of an enterprise of a like character and with like aims, as provided in section 105.688. The board of trustees may delegate to duly appointed investment counselors authority to act in place of the board in the investment and reinvestment of all or part of the moneys of the trust, and may also delegate to such counselors the authority to act in place of the board in the holding, purchasing, selling, assigning, transferring or disposing of any or all of the securities and investments in which such moneys shall have been invested, as well as the proceeds of such investments and such moneys. Such investment counselors shall be registered as investment advisors with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission. In exercising or delegating its investment powers and authority, members of the board of trustees shall exercise ordinary business care and prudence under the facts and circumstances prevailing at the time of the action or decision. No member of the board of trustees shall be liable for any action taken or omitted with respect to the exercise of, or delegation of, these powers and authority if such member shall have discharged the duties of his or her position in good faith and with that degree of diligence, care and skill which a prudent person acting in a like capacity and familiar with these matters would use in the conduct of an enterprise of a like character and with like aims.
4. No investment transaction authorized by the board of trustees shall be handled by any company or firm in which a member of the board has a substantial interest, nor shall any member of the board profit directly or indirectly from any such investment. All investments shall be made for the account of the investment trust, and any securities or other properties obtained by the board of trustees may be held by a custodian in the name of the investment trust, or in the name of a nominee in order to facilitate the expeditious transfer of such securities or other property. Such securities or other properties which are not available in registered form may be held in bearer form or in book entry form. The investment trust is further authorized to deposit, or have deposited for its account, eligible securities in a central depository system or clearing corporation or in a federal reserve bank under a book entry system as defined in the Uniform Commercial Code, chapter 400. When such eligible securities of the investment trust are so deposited with a central depository system they may be merged and held in the name of the nominee of such securities depository and title to such securities may be transferred by bookkeeping entry on the books of such securities depository or federal reserve bank without physical delivery of the certificates or documents representing such securities.
5. With appropriate safeguards against loss by the investment trust in any contingency, the board of trustees may designate a bank or trust company to serve as a depository of trust funds and intermediary in the investment of those funds and payment of trust obligations.
6. The board of trustees may employ a financial institution having fiduciary powers for the provision of such custodial or clerical services as the board may deem appropriate.
7. Consistent with the exercise of its fiduciary responsibilities, the board of trustees may provide for the payment of any costs or expenses for the employees, agents, services or transactions necessary for the execution of sections 30.953 to 30.971 in the form, manner and amount that the board deems appropriate.
8. The board of trustees shall take the necessary steps, consistent with the exercise of its fiduciary responsibilities, to ensure that the investment trust has sufficient available assets to satisfy any obligation to reconvey property held in trust at the end of the term established in a trust agreement.
9. Any funds or property in the charge and custody of the board of trustees of the investment trust pursuant to the provisions of sections 30.953 to 30.971 shall not be subject to execution, garnishment, attachment or any other process whatsoever and shall be unassignable, unless otherwise specifically provided in sections 30.953 to 30.971.]
